We are cruise event navigators with one purpose:
To help meeting and event planners achieve success at sea. Steve Milo is the Managing Partner of CruiseEventGPS, a joint venture with Whet Travel, specializing in corporate meetings end events at sea. He is a meeting industry veteran with more than 25 years of sales and management experience that includes positions with Disney Resorts, Disney Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean, Marriott and two successful event management companies. This uncommon mix of experience working for hotels, resorts , cruise lines and independent third parties enables him to transform most land-based programs into exceptional cruise events . His understanding and focus on the business purpose of corporate meetings and events helps him bridge the gap between the client’s position and the cruise line’s, aligning all involved toward one goal, success at sea.
Adopting a consultative business model, we operate as a professional business adviser vs. a cruise seller with a goal of becoming an indispensable adviser to every client. Our priority is building lasting relationships that are high-value vs. maximizing transactional cruise bookings. That said, we don’t hesitate to share the pros and cons or tell a client when a cruise simply is not a good fit for a meeting or event.
CruiseEventGPS is the result of the collaborative efforts of Whet Travel and Steve Milo.
